Atom Egoyan and the Place of the Witness

This project developed out of an interest in the installation work of renowned Canadian filmmaker Atom Egoyan. Although best known for his single-channel, theatrical release films, Egoyan has historically worked interdisciplinary, creating installations for galleries, directing operas and musicals, and even writing librettos. 

Below is an example of a 2010 installation at the Toronto International Film Festival Bell Lightbox, commissioned for the opening of their new facility.
